Lot Essay

Rolex is well-known for their ability to create wristwatches which can showcase a multitude of colors, whether in the form of dial colors dreamed up with lacquer such as "Stella" dials, or indeed as the present watch demonstrates, dials and cases that are masterfully diamond-set.

Beginning in the 1980s Rolex dared to launch diamond, sapphire and ruby-set watches that also flaunted a chronograph mechanism. These well-known designs set with jewels served an elite clientele and aimed to offer them designs which were classic yet elegant. As much as they may appear as anachronisms, these masterpieces must be regarded as a superb symbiosis of two worlds, sport and elegance. The present watch is a striking asset to any collection and represents the cornerstone of the Swiss manufacturers' craftsmanship.
